Akhirah Meaning, in Arabic & Quran

Akhirah is an Islamic word that refers to the hereafter or afterlife. It is in the core belief of Islam that life on earth is temporary and considered a test from Allah. Afterward, based on what we did in life Allah will decide our eternal home whether it is Jannah (Heaven) or Jahanam (hellfire).

After some minor signs and major signs, there will come a day when the whole universe will be destroyed. On this day, called the Day of Judgement, the dead will be resurrected for judgment by Allah. All people will receive His reward or punishment according to their beliefs and actions.

Muslims believe that Allah will not test them beyond their limits which encourages them to take responsibility for their actions.
